This post, “Peace” was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana 


Today was one of those hectic days we all have sooner or later – though to tell the truth, it seems that there are more of them now than ever before.  When I finally came home from work, I was exhausted both mentally and physically. 


I came inside, dropped my purse, tote bag, and keys on the floor and immediately went into the garden.  I sat in the side garden which is enclosed on all four sides by either the house or large shrubbery.  This is where I go when I need to relax.  It is secluded, cool, and calming.  It is just what I needed.  After resting and enjoying the plants, I was able to then walk around the garden and take the time to enjoy what is blooming and growing.  Soon, I was able to go inside and fix dinner without being stressed out.  I guess this may be what is meant by a healing garden.  I hope you have at least one spot in your garden where you can go to relax and regroup.  If not, think about creating one you will use.
